Rare Spirits: Whiskey research trips, contrary to the first images conjured up in one’s mind, are serious undertakings. I wanted to talk with a variety of professionals in the retail end of the whisky business to learn what unusual whiskies they elevated to the top of their personal lists. The criteria for the quest included taste, rarity, uniqueness, and a personal affinity, but not necessarily age or cost. As it turned out, the whiskies listed in this article range from “NAS” – no age statement, but usually assumed to be around 10 years, to 48 years, with prices from under $100 to thousands.
